Dantes III awarded as Ambassador of Goodwill by the West Negros University, in Bacolod, where he finished Business Management,Major in Marketing Management. The University President Monico Jacob, cited Dantes for promoting Wesnecan ideals and tenets of quality education through a potentially richer blended learning environment, therefore allowing for a greater diversification and greater access to learning “promoted the learning.” Jacob thanked Dantes for seeking for truth and academic integrity through the West Negros University.

Dantes said he is so proud and values his achievement so much, because he really worked for it, adding that being busy should not be a blunder for him to seek self advancement through education, which can not be stolen.” His parents and his girlfriend, Marian Rivera, also an actress were there to witness the occasion.

In the Philippines, to see an artist finish his college degree means a lot. He becomes a role model for the youth, specially his fans, to pursue their dreams and improve their lives too. It shows that anybody could achieve something, no matter what the obstacles are, be it financial, age factor, territorial or you are living in a very remote area far from schools, civil status, even if you are already working, like Dantes who made it and achieved his dream of having a college diploma in spite of his very busy schedule in television and in the movies.

It is said that a man makes his future. In the Philippines, having a college degree gives a person an edge over others in terms of finding good and well-paying jobs, and the opportunity for advancement in career and in his personal life.

There are so many ways that a Filipino could finish education because there are so many opportunities like free education or scholarship grants to bright students, and even free non-formal education like the Alternative Learning System, vocational courses offered free by the TESDA, among others. If a person really has a will to pursue a diploma, he could do it, like Dantes did.
